I've tried many different products and methods over the years in order to successfully air dry my thin, wavy hair. when i blow dry, or use hot tools my hair straightens out very easliy, but when air dried its always puffy and frizzy. this is the first serum that actually lets me air dry my hair, and it looks nice and frizz free! when used while blow drying it leaves my hair silky and smooth as well. i was considering trying out kerastase, but was hesitant to spend $50+ on a hair product, so when i saw this i thought it was worth a shot. i'm so glad i tried it out, i really love this serum. i think it has a nice soft smell, not at all overwhelming, and not greasy.
This comes in a glass pump bottle and is non-greasy. It did a wonderful job of softening my hair and it helped with puffiness. It works better for me when I heat style. My hair came out very shiny and soft when I flat-ironed with it and it has a pleasant scent. For casual days, it doesn't help with surface frizz too much for me, especially in low dews. It does pair well with some of my stylers, in particular my cream based ones. I can see this being perfect to use in the summer for me as it isn't too heavy and it doesn't pull out too much curl. It seems very concentrated so you only need to use a small amount. I like to keep it focused on my ends to keep them hydrated and soft. This is the third product I have tried from the Oleo Therapy line and so far I really like them. Still on the hunt for the self-heating oil treatment now but it is always out of stock where I live. This stuff is also a bit pricier than other drugstore serums but check out Ulta, Target, or CVS for good sales.
light on hair, good on scent like flowers. made my hair smooth. was not oily in my hand.
I got this on a whim today and I am so happy I did!
I never write reviews but this just has to be shared. If you guys are familiar with kerastase, who by the way also makes loreal, this product is exactly like the kerastase oleo oil and a bit like the elixir ultime. :) This made me so happy because I had just bought the chroma riche masque and maquinintense by Kerastase because my hair has been dry, dull, and lifeless probably due to so much hair dye.
Anyway I plopped down 120 dollars and the products worked but I still needed something for before blow drying because blow drying zaps all my moisture I had just gained from the masques, making them utterly useless to me unless I air dry my hair, and seeing as its been in the teens here in Dallas, it's far too cold for me to go out with wet hair.
This oil is so light, smells very pretty, and makes my hair INSTANTLY soft and silky!!! Love love love!!!!
"Oleo Therapy" Perfecting Oil Essence is the same as L'Oreal Elvive Extraordinary Oil. It comes in the same shaped glass bottle and contains the 6 flower oil and has the same exact ingredients. I love this oil it's very light and non-greasy.I use this mainly before blow drying and then I smooth a small amount on my dry hair for extra shine. This oil smells very nice like a high end salon product. So if anyone is wondering this is the same product that L'Oreal markets as Elvive overseas. Great product L'Oreal!
WOW. HG of all hair oils. This is an exact dupe of Kerastase Oleo Relax at a fraction of a price. In fact, I think this one works better. Kerastase is owned by L'Oreal so it doesn't surprise me that it is a very similar formula. It works fantastically. It smoothed my hair better than anything I have ever used. It also didn't weigh it down at all. I am so happy that they came out with this. I can't wait to try all the matching products (shampoo, conditioner, mask, hot oil). Absolutely am thrilled with this line. Please, L'Oreal, don't every discontinue this.
I'd gone into Wmart looking for the L'Oreal Total Repair 5 Multi-Restorative Dry Oil, which was not in stock. They had the Total Repair Extraordinary Oil and the Oleo Therapy Perfecting Oil Essence. I'd never seen this before and @ the time of this post have yet to see it at any of the major drug stores in my area.
I tried looking up reviews for the Extraordinary Oil. It seems that for the US market, L'Oreal calls it Extraordinary Oil and uses a cheap plastic bottle. For overseas markets its called Elvive Extraordinary Oil and comes in the very nice,solid glass bottle that they use for the Perfectinng Oil Essence here in the US.
The ingredients for our version of Extraordinary Oil and Perfecting Essence are VERY similar and almost listed in the same order. The Perfecting Essence states it is 100% Vegan with natural botanicals, while the Extraordinary Oil doesn't state it's Vegan. The instructions for use are diffrent, even though both are the same consistancy i.e Extraordinary can be used before you shampoo.They both have a very nice perfume like scent,with the Extraordinary Oil having a slightly nuttier undertone,much like Moroccainoil. Which is odd considering that the Perfecting Oil has Argana Spinosa
I'm a hair oil addict, so naturally this caught my eye. You get 3.4 oz in a very heavy glass bottle with a locking pump. It looks expensive, but the price range is $11-15. I paid $12.99 at Ulta. This has 6 flower oils for a silky finish and luminous shine. On my hand it's smooth and absorbs easily. I don't find that this weighs my hair down at all, and to me it smells incredible. It has a soft floral scent that's common with higher end hair care. It's hard to find any information online since it's new. The other products in the line are a Self Heating Oil Treatment, Oil Infused Shampoo & Conditioner, and a Deep Recovery Mask.
